Changing up the Fireplace Mantel

Today I've been tinkering with the Fireplace Mantel
I hate to admit but I still had the evergreen garland up from Christmas

I love the enamelware basin and the farm lanterns so I left them but changed everything else

I like how it came together...a touch of Americana, will add some Red Geraniums later
I'm not quite ready for a full blown summer look yet...too early

So I will leave you to look at the pictures now...Have a Great Day!


  1. Looks great, Traci as do the pictures on fb! You sure have the knack for prim decorating! Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

    Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

  2. Your mantle is Americana warmth! Great ambiance!!
    Thanks for the inspiration Traci!... I am gonna pull out my lanterns {{HUGS}}

  3. Hi Traci, well you did it again have just inspired me to do some spring decorating! I love how your mantel came out, fantastic job my friend! Wishing you a wonderful day!
    Hugs Mary

  4. I'll be darned if I don't love everything about that! Prim perfect as usual my friend :o)

  5. Hi Traci,
    It looks wonderful.
    The red geraniums are going to go perfectly when your ready for summer display.
    Great job!

  6. Huge Smile Traci...You made me feel so much better about takin forever to change things.. I do hope the christmas garland was fake if not it had to be so brittle...
    The mantel looks Prim Perfect... I love the pan too.. one of my fav things and of course Lanterns are always comforting and warm looking!
    You can just keep adding this and that with little Americana to it all the way to mid summer if ya want...How fun will taht be...

    Hve a Great Day!


  7. It is just terrific, Traci!! Love it now, and I think it will look great with red geraniums for the summer. I love old lanterns and have one that I kept on my mantle, too, until I had to start packing things away for our move.
    I can't wait to get decorating once again!!!

    1. Morning Friend
      Oh I love it. I so love enamelware. Especially with red geraniums.
      Happy Friday

  8. LOL about the garland...THAT I got taken down, but I just spied a Santa waiting on his box hanging about. Shame on me. Life is so less than normal these days (and that means it's down right scary!) Loving the new look Traci Girl....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
